The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) has released its latest report examining adult English and Maths levels.
The report highlights that in some areas almost a quarter of adults have numeracy skills of entry level 3 or below- the national school curriculum equivalent for age 9-11.
Skills Minister Matthew Hancock commented:
"Good English and Maths are vital for getting a job and playing a full part in society. We have doubled the funding for adult English and Maths because they are so important…These essential skills are the building clocks of a productive society and a thriving economy. I am determined that everyone - no matter how they live - should have the chance to achieve their best."
